Montes is a Chilean super-producer that uses sustainable farming also exports its wine to over 100 countries. According to Montes, their 1987 Cabernet Sauvignon was the first premium wine exported out of Chile, followed by the first ultra-premium Alpha M in 1996. This wine is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot and offers lively aromas of ripe black and red fruits on the nose. Notes of pastry, baking spice, and toasted notes emerge from the French oak ageing. Smooth tannins and a lip-smacking finish. Pair with steak frites, paella, and tomato-based pasta.
